Cat In the Hat Visits Alfred Vail
On February 25th, NJEA selected Alfred Vail as one of the schools to be visited by the Cat in the Hat! This visit was to promote Read Across-New Jersey and help build a diverse nation of readers. The cat walked through our school and greeted children from every classroom! It was a wonderful celebration!
February 18- Staff Professional Development
The teachers at Alfred Vail took a deep dive into learning more about Culturally Responsive Practice, Social Emotional Learning, and analyzing student data.
After School Questions
Asking "How was school today?" might not get you far. Instead, ask questions like these for a better picture of your youngsters day:
- "What's the coolest thing that happened today?"
- "Pretend you are the teacher, how would you describe the day?"
- "What made you laugh?"
- "What was the most creative thing you did?"
- "How were you kind or helpful today? How was someone kind or helpful to you?"
